HUGE   NEWSFLASH -  A Community Center for Creston has been a collective dream for over 25 years ( as of 2019) and is coming into its own thanks to the generosity of members of our community and two important granting agencies here in San Luis Obispo County, namely The Community Foundation of San Luis Obispo County who awarded CATCH a Build Grant and San Luis Obispo County who awarded CATCH a Beautification and Infrastructure Grant in 2019. Together, these two grants allowed the CATCH Fund to construct a large, concrete patio with a metal shade structure that will be used by the community for events, celebrations and fundraisers of all types.  The CATCH Board's first event to make use of their new metal shade cover and pation was the annual Halloween celebration sponsored to local families free of charge by the Creston Women's Club and the Creston Garden Club. Kids and families come to "town" ( 9 square blocks) to grab a hot dog, baked goods, and candy at the decorated Community Center while socializing with friends and neighbors and admiring each other's costumes. They then head off to circumnavigate the "tiny town" of Creston and "Trick or Treat".

NEWSFLASH::  I have posted some new phone numbers and contact info onto the Links/Contacts page.  I have posted the addresses and phone numbers of our elected officials on the contact page.

DID  YOU  KNOW THAT  THE GARDEN CLUB  HAS AN AREA INSIDE  THE COMMUNITY  VOLUNTEER  GARDEN  WHERE CELEBRATION - MEMORIAL - HONOR  TYPE ENGRAVED  BRICKS ARE  INSTALLED ?  It is located at the main entrance, around the three birch trees that are in a huge raised planter !  Anyone can personalize a brick and help support the Community Garden Club - which uses proceeds to maintain and improve our gorgeous community garden - which is sort of like the only real  "park" located here in our Creston area !! Applications to create a personal brick are right there at the entrance to the Garden - which is located on Swayze Street, next to the Rodeo Grounds, and for more info on this idea, please call Judy at  805-226-9489. I have purchased two bricks so far -  one that honors friends and family, and the other that honors the memory of my two beloved BLM Mustangs, who were very dear to me, of course ! The cost for three lines is $75.  I am guessing that there are over 50 bricks in that area so far.

The Creston Advisory Body meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month inside the Church Sanctuary. Check out their web site for details  ( see my Links / Contacts page ) and the Bulletin Board for the Agenda that is posted 3 days before their meeting. The agenda is also posted inside the local Library ! All sorts of reports are given, such as Police, Fire, District 5 - Debbie Arnold, etc. If you have any questions, check out their informative web site - the address is on my Links and Contacts page ( see button above ).
   
For those of you new to Creston, the Library is open on Tuesdays from 1 - 7  pm, Thursdays noon - 6 pm, and Fridays 10 am  - 4 pm.

   The local Friends of the Creston Library meets at  11:30 am on the Second Thursday each month. Lots of exciting activities at the Library ! the backyard project has made some progress in the last two years: a healthy, flowering Locust was donated by the Garden Club and installed into the ground by Kay and Paul Kunzler. Several local residents have been creating the landscape in the back yard.  Thank you to Brooke for installing the fantastic new drip irrigation system !
